About this Event

What is Accessibility Nottingham?

Accessibility Nottingham is a free, regular meet up in Nottingham’s City Centre. We bring together inspirational speakers, leading professionals and web developers: providing a synthesis of years of experience, to introduce our visitors to the importance of inclusivity and accessibility in digital technology.

What you will take away

Whether you already have a vast understanding of Accessibility, or this is completely new to you; our event will guide you through an introduction to the value of digital accessibility, whilst providing you with a toolkit, helping you to gain the knowledge to make a change.

We'd like to hear from you

We would like this event to be inclusive, with a wide range of opinions, so if you have a story to tell or a problem you'd like solving, please come along and share your views and stories with industry experts to provide a better understanding of your everyday challenges.

Did you know that in 2016, 4 in 10 council website homepages were inaccessible? That's something we believe ought to change. Everyone should have equal online opportunity, regardless of disability or circumstance.
